*WHEW* First post ! Been a while since I was last on any message boards, looks like the antispam features have advanced abit..
Hi ! Audiophile from Canada (Alberta) and am looking for a helpful hint (not allowed to search posts yet and was only able to jump through a few dozen pages looking for help - before joining).
Bryston BDP-2 latest firmware [for the sake of simplicity, presume the following has been done: boot/reboot/reset to factory/pwr on/pwr off/single 128gb usb key(worked AOK a few months ago, the last time I had this out with a teac DAC and headphones)/control via mac/firefox/ipad/safari is "ok"] - if this is of note, everything unplugged on boot up BDP chirps 1 time. with a USB and P6 in 3 times..
I have just purchased a Parasound P6 to use with the BDP-2 (as a DAC/2.1 pre/decent phono stage etc), they ar not playing nice.
When I plug the Parasound into the BDP-2, the dashboard updates seeing the P6 - "Parasound - USB Audio (DSD Enabled)" with a second entry below "Parasound - USB Audio #1 (DSD Enabled)", great news!
luck of the draw if MPD stays active for a few seconds then just shuts down or is completely inactive (I have powered up BDP first, P6 first with no predictable change).
With mpd down although the USB disk with music is visible in disk information, player does not have access to it.
Twice I have been able to rapidly select a track and have 1 sec of music release befor MPD gets grumpy.
Direction is appreciated,
